Gotta love those pumpkins!

I too looked around blogland~drooling embarassingly~
and saw fabric pumpkins~primitive ones all the way
to elegant ones. I jumped on the band wagon~and then
jumped off when it creaked~buwahahaha~and made some~




Well
so far
so good!

Soda Crate Turned Fall

I was a little overjoyed at finding this old vinage weather
beaten soda crate. Did I mention loving old
weather beaten items....
And small things? Don't you love little things,
like little toys, grouped together in a doll house?



























I can't wait to decorate
it with Christmas
vintage goodies!

Crows~for the Table~and Kitchen









WOOHOO
IT'S ANOTHER
PARTY!




I'M HAVING A PARTY WITH
CROWS IN MY KITCHEN!
Could it be a raven or a crow on the table?
Maybe with
some glitter?
My hubby can't stand
crows! They dive bomb
our nests that have
eggs in them. They are
on the outside of the barn...
the chickens in the barn
lay their eggs and the eggs
roll outside for us to collect...
and oh how the ravens love
fresh eggs.
Especially for breakfast!
Joining in on the
Tablescape fun
with a Halloween
and Crow theme.

On the table I used a
quilt I made for the base.
Added fabric napkins
from the thrift store. I
collect them whenever
I see them.
I also made the
little bread dough
ornaments~pumpkins
and black cats surrounding
the little candle.
Blessings,
Debbie




















Halloween Cake Plate Stand


Hello again. I've sort of reposted part of this...
I took the basic candle stick and wooden plate
and made a cake stand but I added one thing...
a bird cage! All of it spray painted black for this
season.















































I'm using it at the moment
to store extra bowls and
plates in on my buffet!
I'm loving it.
Blessings,
Debbie

Treasures here on earth













We were
fortunate enough
to spend the weekend
with our kids in Tulsa.
Darlene @ Darlene's Days~ I waved at you as I flew over Oklahoma!!!
We celebrated, ate, laughed, cried and told


funny stories!
My daughter
just makes me
happy....just
seeing her and hugging
her was good for
this mama's soul!
And then there
is this little
sweety~our
daughter-in-love..
she is a treasure.





But boy did
I boohoo...
I didn't mean
to...it just kind
of spilled out
when we were
leaving....
I hate that...
hate missing
them so much...
it feels like forever
when we are away from
them....
I hate that
forever feeling...
But I'm grateful
for what I have.
We blog about
a lot of things
but this post is
about my treasures
here on earth.

Blessings,
Debbie

Snowgals dressed in Pink!


A little peak at what I have been working on! A little pink
on a snowman or snowgal seems to be the perfect color!















I started out with a
snowman, added a nose,
and some little
cross stitched eyes...






















and then started
cutting out little
dresses, hats, fur
embellishments....























































I'm not done
but you can see that the possibilities are endless...in
a pink sort of way!

Joining in today with Beverly @ HowSweetTheSound
for another wonderful Pink Saturday!
Blessings,
Debbie
